It’s a common trope in society: the wealthier you are, the less work people think you do. You see so many images of wealthy people living a jet setting lifestyle, driving expensive cars, and taking vacations in exotic locales that it’s easy to forget all the hard work that went to getting there. Being able to live such a lifestyle is the consequence of wealth, not the cause. A 45-year old sipping martinis on a beach in the Bahamas didn’t get to that point by lounging around on the beaches all day. READ MORE

Investing in Stocks
The stock market (which includes share markets) is notable for a number of reasons. It is exceedingly accessible to the average person, it offers high risk and high rewards, and there are countless numbers of people who have made and lost fortunes overnight in them. The stock market crashes of 1929 and 1987 still ring in the ears of investors all across the country, despite the fact that they have long since faded into the history books. This gives the stock market an aura of thrill and fear, which makes it seem scarier than it actually is. READ MORE

Investing in BusinessYou will commonly hear this refrain from successful business owners: nobody ever got rich working for somebody else. A cursory glance at the Forbes 400 gives credence to this statement; the list overwhelmingly comprises of entrepreneurs and business owners. When you give it some thought, it makes sense, too: working for somebody else means that you’re always capped by what they are willing to pay you. Work for yourself, and the limit is only what you’re willing to work for. READ MORE

Investing in Real EstateInvesting in real estate used to be something of an unofficial national pastime. When the property market experienced year after year of double-digit growth in prices, people all across the country (and even across the world) were snatching up properties left and right, hoping to turn a quick profit. This made a lot of people rich…until the bubble popped, and millions of people lost everything in a matter of months. This includes many of the people who once stated that house flipping was a “sure bet”. As we now know, that was hardly the case at all. READ MORE

Choose WealthWealth isn’t just a state of being; it’s a mindset. Take a look at where a lot of lottery winners end up – many of them wind up being completely bankrupt within a few years. They were superficially wealthy, but they never possessed a wealthy mindset. Without the understanding of how to create and maintain real wealth, they did not know how to keep their fortune in their hands. You must choose to be wealthy – it will never fall into your lap. No matter how many good things come your way, if you don’t know how to utilize the time and money you have to generate wealth, you will be lost. You must choose wealth. READ MORE

Have You Embraced the Importance of Ratings?
The landscape of marketing seems to be changing again. Traditional marketing will continue to be important but is being swamped by ratings. We have all got used to Google and the importance of search engine optimization. It is important to get yourself to the top of page 1 to get page visits and business from those seeking to purchase or enquire online. However, for leisure sectors, many now avoid traditional searches and go straight to rating sites such as Tripadvisor. READ MORE

Do You Inspire Your Staff?
My experience tells me that a very small percentage of company presidents, managers and supervisors truly inspire their staff. They might build solid teams, set clear expectations and reach most of their goals, but they fail to inspire their people to reach and become better.
But if you’re building effective teams and getting adequate results, does inspiration really matter that much?
